Yesterday just before dawn, two New York City pols awoke to the worst sound a sleazebag public ‘servant’ can hear – sirens. Several more operatives shared the same rude awakening, as a total of six mostly Republican politicians and political operatives were indicted for wire fraud and bribery. They are as follows: Democrat-turned-Independent-Democrat-turned-Republican-wannabe Malcolm Smith, Republican city councilman Dan Halloran, Bronx Republican fief Joseph Savino, Queens Republican vice-chair Vincent Tabone, and the Mayor and deputy Mayor of Spring Valley, New York; Noramie Jasmin and Joseph Desmaret.
